    Check my pics, are these valves already toast? Cam gears not aligning.

    My best luck was to turn it over by hand till both dowel pins ( right above the bolt ) where facing up then get something small enough to stick into the timing slots and if they line up right then what ever you have that fits into the timing marks will fit good, if not it'll be rough to get it...

    Worth Fixing?

    When was the head done? Maybe the head gaskets bad or timing is off. You don't necessarily need a new motor. Just some head work at most. few hundred bucks and you could be running like new. Whats it done when you try to start it anyway? Just crank, do you smell any fuel. You check for spark and...

    Speedo and RPMS go up, car doesn't go any faster

    I was driving home tonight and I noticed when I turned right I think it was that I felt something like I can't even explain it. Almost like the something is slipping off the road. I noticed when I was giving it gas that the rpms and speedo would go up pretty fast but I wouldn't be moving much...

    Collapsing Lifter

    I was trying that and I didn't get any results..... How long should I be pumping them for? I was pumping for about a minute on a bunch of random ones and none ever stiffened back up. I was just thinking... I guess I should have been pumping it with the paper clip and not by hand. I'll give that...

    Timing tensioner pulley moves?

    So taking a better look at it today in the day time I notice that your right. The rocker arm was what was moving(along with the pulley since there attached ). I see how the auto tensioner will push up on that and then it'll just spin. Thanks guys. Got the auto tensioner in today, not sure if...

    Timing tensioner pulley moves?

    I haven't gotten that far. I'm waiting for the the auto tensioner to come in. When i was taking it out I noticed that the when trying to loosen the nut on the pulley that it was moving up and down. I haven't seen that before.

    Timing tensioner pulley moves?

    The pulley itself... Should it be just able to spin or is it able to move... Mine is somehow capable of moving up and down. I'm curious how this is possible? Makes no sense me honestly.

    Switching to dsmlink, couple questions

    Awesome! Now I plan on getting a Palm to put in the car after it tuned. I was assuming that the palm can restore the maps if I ever disconnected the battery or anything as long as I saved the map on the palm. Is that right?

    Problem with motor car is not idling

    Check -Timing -Boost Leaks -IAC Sensor -TPS Sensor -Make sure the MAF is plugged in.I've had alots and lots of idle problems. Check the Vfaq for all those and test them. More than likely you'll solve your problem.

    I had and still have an ACT 2600lb PP and clutch in my car. Turns out I cracked the disc and shot some springs. When I did that I got the tranny rebuilt.

    Dsmlink swap

    Ah MAS is what im thinking of. So I do I have to modify the stock mas or anything? Also I been having these idling issues with my car. I replaced the throttle body, blocked off the FIAV,EGR, replaced the IAC, going to replace the TPS. If that doesn't fix it, there any chance dsmlink can help...

    Idle issue

    Did some more diagnoses today. I unplugged the TPS and made the car idle by pressing down on the gas pedal, when I had it around 1100 steady I would have somoene plug in the TPS and it would instantly stall. Any comments on that?

    Dsmlink swap

    ECU Question, Have Pic

    I pulled this out of a GSX, However it looks nothing what so ever like mine. Is this just a stock ecu?

    Replaced ISC, Plug Wires, Spark Plugs, no boost leaks,no water in the intake, and its not the BOV. Still doesn't idle. Sometimes it'll attempt to idle at around 500rpms? Sometimes it'll also idle at like 1600 rpms, only briefly though, then it'll stall. If I start it up from a cold it'll idle...

When I adjusted that tps last time, I loosened it up turned it a hair and tightened it back up and thats when it was fine. My afc just said it was at like .545v or something. Anyway, ISC isn't the problem, any...
  50. vexixx

    Idle issue

    Not the biss, the tps. You can adjust its voltage, mine was adjusted to like .55 at idle or so my afc said. Im not sure why that fixed it. Ill check the ISC.
